health insurance. 28 thousand will be eligible for medi cal and 12 thousand 500 will be eligible for covered california, 19 thousand 500 will be ineligible for coverage, those will be the undocumented residents or people who have other reasons not being subject to the mandate. eligibility does not equal an enrollment and people will have to actively enroll into health insurance to get the coverage they are entitled to, so of the 40 thousand 500 we think are eligible, about 25 thousand will access insurance. this is based on a 62.5% rate of retention that we currently experience in the healthy san francisco program, so we have anticipate hated our retention rate which is quite good for our program will translate into health insurance enrollment. this leaves about 15 thousand 500 who represent those who may be eligible but do not enroll in health insurance. and they might not enroll for any number of reasons, enrollment is complex, they may choose to pay the penalty rather than enroll in insurance, they may choose to pay the penalty rather than enroll in insurance, this group plus

insurance, while cal foreign's health exchange, the cover california that i referred to before will make health insurance more affordable to many individuals in high cost cities like ours, like san francisco where according to recent reports during the most recent quarter, a one bedroom apartment in san francisco will cost you an average of 779, in these high cost, lower wage employers will find health insurance unaffordable, because of the health care security ordinance and the spending requirement in that ordinance, we hope the workers we're talking about will be able to use this money to meet their individual mandate and if workers can use the employer contribution to purchase health insurance, we believe the aca will be an enormous success in san francisco and we believe that san francisco will be the model for the rest of the country on how to maximize its success of the aca because of the health care security ordinance. there's a last point that i want to highlight here before asking the department of public health to come and present, in 2015, the aca will include a requirement th
